Job description

The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching. The Faculty of Cultural Studies at the University of Bayreuth is currently seeking to appoint a

Professor of Political Philosophy

This is a permanent civil service position at the W2 level in the “Bayreuth Track” scheme. The postholder may be promoted to the W3 level upon successful performance review of research and teaching in accordance with the Bayreuth Track Personnel Development Model for professors at the University of Bayreuth.

Applicants are expected to be internationally established scholars in either political philosophy or philosophy of public policy, and have a background at the intersection of philosophy and economics. The successful applicant should complement the Department of Philosophy’s research activities. The postholder will play a key role in our decision-oriented BA and MA programmes in Philosophy & Economics. Effective teaching ability at the intersection of political philosophy and economics is crucial.

Requirements for this position (according to Article 7 and Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG) are a university degree, the ability to conduct scholarly work (generally demonstrated by the quality of the applicant’s doctoral research), a Habilitation (post-doctoral lecturing qualification), and proven excellence in teaching. Evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. A further prerequisite is the ability to teach in English. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants (Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG).

The University of Bayreuth strives to further increase the diversity of its academic staff. Scholars who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse – particularly female and international applicants – are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. All qualifications being equal, severely disabled applicants will be given priority. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth has been certified as a “family-friendly university” and offers "dual career support" for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth’s commitment to internationalization.
